Appearances

~ Prince Caspian ~ (1951)

When Caspian is around 13 years old, his aunt Queen Prunaprismia gives birth to a son. This simple event precipitates Caspian's flight from his uncle Miraz's castle and the Old Narnian rebellion that follows. After Caspian escapes the castle, Prunaprismia is not mentioned again in the story.



About Prunaprismia

Prunaprismia is Miraz's wife and a very unpleasant person. From Lewis' description and the name he gave her (based on the phrase "prunes and prisms," meaning very strict and proper), it seems safe to assume that she is a prim woman who is very selfish and protective of her husband's power. Lewis writes that Prunaprismia had never liked Caspian, even when he was a child, and it no doubt afforded her great happiness to give birth to a son who would displace Caspian as the heir to the throne.
